They were complaining about the cost of clothes and how it never fails that the first time they wear something it gets ruined with a stain.
Then one of the moms said she will send her daughter to daycare with a cheap $12 Target sweater over her clothes in winter, because she doesn't mind those getting ruined.
Is it just me, or does $12 for a baby sweater seem NOT cheap?
I'm happy with Jane to have hand-me-downs and garage sale finds and clearance rack goods. She only wears them for a short while, and the less I get attached to them the better. I've already got boxes of little onesies and such that I'm never going to want to let go (my idea: make a quilt out of them and/or frame some for wall hangings).
So basically I'm in a different class than those mothers at the story time. But I don't think it's a higher class by any estimation ... seeing as how I'm writing a post mocking them and their sartorial choices.
